Friday Fictioneers ~~ June 28

I’m going to skip any chatter today and go right to the good stuff. Well except to thank Rochelle Wisoff-Fields once again for hosting. And to let you know you can click on her name and that will take you to her blog where you can read about the few rules we have. Also you can scroll down on Rochelle’s blog till you meet the blue critter, then click on him and from there you can read lots of other great stories based on the same picture. Go there. Now! πŸ˜‰


Write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and an end. (No one will be ostracized for going over or under the word count.)


Make every word count.

He stopped running, bending he breathed in big gulps of air. Racing heart, Β sweat running down his face he noticed things getting blurry.

No! He refused to lose focus. Β Chest heaving, shinsΒ burning, he straightened and started running again.

Almost tripping he managed to keep running. He had to get there! He was not quitting! Lungs burning, he noticed the bus that passed, almost in slow motion.

Brushing the sweat out of his eyes, he kept moving. It was a matter of pride now.

Wife bet him he couldn’t run to the corner and back. Show her who was out of shape!



I enjoy reading, writing, and painting. I love animals and at present have one dog (Sam) and 2 cats (brother and sister, Notwen and Pouncer). I've lived in various places in the USA and now in Canada. I've always enjoyed watching life and people and have developed an appreciation for it all. My outlook is sometimes out of the normal.... but that's what makes things so interesting! I am always interested in the opinions of others. Everyone has their own outlook and it's always worthwhile to listen!

  1. That bit about ‘shins burning’ was one of those descriptive phrases that says it all. Well done, enjoyed this and a smile at the end of it.


  2. Great pacing in this. I thought he was running to catch something or someone. I hope his wife’s proud of him when (if) he gets home.
